What are your thoughts on a sociology degree? Are you seen as smart doing this degree? Is it a stressful degree? Or are you seen as a dummy taking this degree? Honest help would be appreciated!

You seem more preoccupied with what other people think of you doing the degree, than the content of the degree itself. Other people's good opinion won't be enough to sustain yourself for 3 years if you end up in a course you hate - trust me, I am speaking from experience here.

Hey sasha2200

I studied Sociology at undergraduate level and at postgraduate level. I studied it because I loved it.

I appreciate that Sociology can get a bad rep sometimes, but I think you should go to uni to study a subject your passionate about and enjoy rather than if people will see you as smart.

Doing a Sociology degree consists of a lot of theories and concepts. In terms of stress, I would say a lot of degrees can be stressful because of the adaption to the workload.

These are some jobs that some of our sociology graduates have gone in to: social work or some other kind of public sector welfare employment such as the probation service, the social services and wider caring professions; the civil service and local and national government; teaching and lecturing; third sector advocacy; think tanks and policy development; the police and criminal justice system; human resource management; media and creative industries; health promotion and public health; business and finance; ICT development; environmental campaigning; and international development.

Sociology is a humanities subject, much like History or English. These degrees offer transferable skills as well the specialist knowldge you acquire from studying them.

I hope you find this helpful.

Good luck with whatever you do and let me know if I can assist you further.

Ashley
